There is legit waste of water when you boil a kettle full but use only a cup. The extra energy could have been used elsewhere – like lighting streetlamps! Any ways, the MIITO Precise hopes to overcome this problem and can heat any liquid, directly in its container. Simply place your cup on the induction plate and immerse the rod into the liquid.
As explained by the designers, “The plate creates an electromagnetic field, which only heats ferrous materials.” I like the sleek design, which makes it easier to get rid of lime scale build-up. The silicone handle insulates the rod and you can heat the liquid between 30° and 100°C. In short, you can expect to use 30% less energy than conventional electric kettles. Nice!
